Animal Classification by Elisa Scarpelli King Phillip Came

Spaghetti :) Classification for Some Animals Foldable Project Kingdom Phylum Order Family Genus Species 1.Fold in half - Hot Dog Style
2.Place one finger on the paper and fold your top flap back... up to your fingertip. This will leave a small unfolded/uncut section for your title. You can see in the pic to the left - this section is where you put your title!
3.Cut! In half, in half again and so on, until you have four bottom flaps. Then repeat to the top section. I numbered my flaps, which helped them see what they needed to end up with. http://middleschoolforlife.blogspot.com/2012/04/animal-classification-foldable.html Class http://edushop.edu4kids.com/chart-scientific-classification-p-18838.html Carl Linnaeus
Classified animals in1750's To help scientists keep this all straight, they start by classifying, or by placing lifeforms in groups called kingdoms. These kingdoms represent a very large group of lifeforms that are all similar in some ways, but can be very different from one another in other ways. The five kingdoms that biologists have developed are the Monera Kingdom, the Protist Kingdom, the Fungi Kingdom, the Plant Kingdom, and the Animal Kingdom. The next group that scientists have developed to further classify living things is the Phylum (plural: phyla). Lifeforms are grouped together based once again on how they are similar and how they are different. Let's look at a phyla found in the Animal Kingdom. Everything in the Animal Kingdom is similar to each other in important ways. Can you think of some ways that animals are similar to one another? How are they different? Scientists continue to classify animals further into groups called classes. How do you think they decide which animals belong to which classes? If you guessed “how they are the same and how they are different,” you guessed correctly. Biologist continue classifying lifeforms further into Orders, Families, Genus, and Species.
